In the dynamic financial landscape of 2023, Elon Musk’s wealth skyrocketed by a staggering $94 billion, marking an unparalleled surge. Meanwhile, Gautam Adani experienced a sharp decline of nearly $35 billion due to the fallout from the Hindenburg report, a stark contrast to his previous standing as the world’s third-richest person.

The AI-driven boom in tech stocks not only propelled Musk but also facilitated Mark Zuckerberg’s return to the prestigious top 10 list. Amidst these tech magnates, Bernard Arnault and Warren Buffett remained the sole non-tech billionaires in this elite circle, showcasing a diverse mix amidst the tech-dominated surge.
